Alden & Landis 714/158; A. von Haller, Bibl. bot. I (1771), p. 489; Pritzel 10506.

Ladrón de Guevara, Baltasar
[c. 1771]. Folio (320 x 220 mm). pp. [559]. Contemporary cat's paw calf with leather ties and a flat spine gilt in compartments; worn edges and joints and with three small paper labels at foot of spine but otherwise in good condition. Untrimmed edges; final two leaves slightly creased and with a light ink stain.- A manuscript copy, most likely a working draft, of Ladrón de Guevara's adverse criticism on convent reform in the 1760s and 1770s published in 1771. This manuscript is extensively revised throughout and the revisions are those that appear in the published version, which strongly suggests that this manuscript pre-dates the published edition and that this was a working copy for it. In this account of life in the Mexican Convent of Jesús María, Ladrón de Guevara protests against the sweeping Bourbon reforms that were being made to convent life by the reformist Bishop of Puebla, Francisco Fabián y Fuero (1719-1810). From the date of his appointment in 1765, Fabián y Fuero had been most energetic in enforcing the reforms of the Mexican Church being introduced by his friend, Francisco Antonio de Lorenzana (1722-1804), Archbishop of Mexico. On August 1768, Fabián y Fuero had sent a pastoral letter to the abbesses of convents stating his intention of curtailing access to private money in convents and abolishing the custom of the peculio (an allowance nuns could draw from their dowries) as well as dismantling private living arrangements within convents and dismissing all private servants. He also aimed to implement vida comúnor common life in convents, a reform favo … [Click Below for Full Description]

SMITH, Dr. John.
Printed For The Author, Salisbury, 1771. Hardcover. Quarto. (vi) 73 (74 - errata) pp. Twentieth century half brown leather over marbled-paper boards. Title in gilt to spine. 2 engraved views bound-in at front (not counted in pagination) 3 foldout copperplate plans at rear, one woodcut in-text. Smith, a medical doctor, was the first to promote the idea that Stonehenge was an observatory built in alignment with the summer and winter solstices, with the outer circle of stones representing the solar year, and the inner one the lunar month. His book remains an important study, not least on account of the detailed plans and diagrams of Stonehenge as it was at the time. The term 'Choir Gaur' allegedly means 'Choir of Giants' (although other meanings and etymologies have been proposed), and is supposedly a traditional name for Stonehenge. It was used by John Wood in his 1747 book on Stonehenge, and has remained popular amongst enthusiasts of the stones. A truly lovely copy. Merest hint of rubbing to the boards, which are still near-Fine. A little shadowing to the margins of the endpapers, a little offsetting to the reverse of the first two plates and the title page, one small indentation running through the text pages, otherwise a remarkably bright and clean copy, it would not be wrong to call it near-Fine. A rare complete copy: this volume includes the two engraved views of Stonehenge by Roberts that Allibone (Critical Dictionary of English Literature) avers should be part of the volume, but that are seldom seen with it. Uncommon thus, and especially so in such lovely condition. [ … [Click Below for Full Description]

This one showcases a 1784,London printed "Children's Curious Hieroglyphick Bible" in the upper portion of the case. (it does not have the general title, but is otherwise complete) (the first edition was printed in London in 1783) I needed to edit this portion of the description because I originally thought this book to be a 1792 printing. Looking again at the free end papers, there is a note that identifies this printing as a 1784...the apparent identifiers of that date are found on page 107 of this book...this is noted on the free end paper in pencil. I do now recall about eight years ago being able to confirm that note as factual, but I can't remember how exactly I was able to research that and confirm it...but I do remember that I was able to. ...............................................................................................................................................................

Es wirkt so, als ob die Bücher kaum oder sogar gar nicht benutzt wurden. Alle Seiten sind gut und deutlich lesbar. Die Bücher stammen aus einer Bibliothek und sind daher auf den Titelblättern gestempelt. An den Rücken kann man noch die Spuren von Rückenschildchen erkennen die dort einmal angebracht waren.

London: F. Newbery, 1771. The book is in good condition, having some defects. The backstrip of the Dutch floral paper covered binding is missing, and the whole has been covered in grey paper sewn to the boards. The small text block is shaken and has had the first two leaves sewn back in, leaving them misaligned. Five leaves are missing, comprising pages 23 to 28, 93, 94, 123 and 124.The book has 57 woodcuts of the original 62.Scattered foxing and occasional handling marks throughout, though many pages are mainly clean. One leaf (pages 61-62) has a small hole, but no text or image is missing. On the rear free endpaper is inscribed Elizth Harrison Her Book March 5 1775. The edges of the pages are slightly softened, and there are some turned corners.So, a defective copy, but apparently the only one left in existence. [Attributes: First Edition]

Plein veau d'époque, dos à nerfs ornés, titres de maroquin rouge. Défauts d'usage et petits manques de cuir, coiffes fatiguées. Bel exemplaire, en reliure d'époque, du plus célèbre des ouvrages de vulgarisation scientifique du XVIIIème siècle (1ere édition : 1743). Érudit et artisan de talent, Nollet travaille avec du Fay et Réaumur comme constructeur d'instruments. C'est également un excellent orateur et vulgarisateur. Ces dons, joints aux instruments scientifiques qu'il a à sa disposition, l'encouragent à se lancer dans la carrière de conférencier. Il donne la première de ses "causeries expérimentales" en 1735. Le succès est immense et la popularité de Nollet va grandissant. Il est sollicité à Turin, Bordeaux, Reims ; les commandes d'instruments sont de plus en plus nombreuses ; Voltaire lui demande en 1738 un cabinet d'instruments d'une valeur de 10 000 livres. Sa position sociale et financière est assurée ; son prestige se trouve renforcé par son élection à l'Académie des sciences en 1739. Nollet est d’abord un vulgarisateur qui a brillamment illustré une approche de la communication scientifique où l'expérimentation et la démonstration jouent un rôle essentiel.

William Evitt, Philadelphia, 1771. [48]pp. plus fourteen unprinted leaves. 24mo. Contemporary marbled wrappers. Wrappers lightly worn. One contemporary manuscript inscription on one unprinted leaf, a few manuscript annotations in margins of printed pages. Light age-toning, offsetting on blank leaves. A near fine copy. An extremely rare colonial-era Pennsylvania almanac compiled and published by William Evitt. Drake records copies at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and the American Antiquarian Society, but the AAS does not list this edition in their online catalogue. NAIP records the ten previous annual issues of this almanac, but not this edition, perhaps the last published with this title. However, AAS does hold a copy lacking the last leaf. This copy is in contemporary wrappers and has fourteen additional blank leaves, only one of which has a single inscription ("Thursday 10th [December] came Nancy"). A few contemporary annotations, however, are found in the margins of the printed text. In addition to the calendar, the almanac provides an extensive list of the "representatives, sheriffs, coroners, commissioners, and assessors throughout the province of Pennsylvania." Information on court sessions in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, and Virginia is also included. A rare surviving copy of perhaps the last issue of this popular Pennsylvania almanac. Not in OCLC or NAIP; listed in Evans (the imperfect AAS copy). DRAKE 9958. EVANS 12039. HILDEBURN 2651.

Printer's device on title pages, woodcut head and tailpieces; folding map of South America by Veremondo Rossi. Previous owner stamp on title page. Some restored marginal wormholes. Bound in original full vellum, with gilt lettered title on spine. Born from a family of ancient nobility, he began his education in the College of Nobles of Ravenna, founded by Cardinal Francesco Barberini and supported by the learned Jesuit Camillo Berardi. He then continued his studies at the University of Padua where he graduated in law and, subsequently, in theology, entering the Society of Jesus on July 22, 1753. The following year, I made contact with Jesuit missionaries from Latin America, went to Bologna to be well-educated and embarked in Genoa, in 1755, sometimes in the Americas, reaching Cartagena and, finally, Quito. He remained in South America for over a decade, teaching moral theology at the University of Quito and, above all, working on the grandiose editorial project of writing a historical-geographical compendium of South America. In 1767, following the expulsion of the Jesuits from all the territories of the Kingdom of Spain, ordered by Charles III, Coleti was forced to interrupt his work and move to Italy, to teach theology in the Convent of San Girolamo in Bagnacavallo and devote himself to cataloging and use of the huge amount of documents brought by Quito.

VERRI, P.)
Napoli, Nella Stamperia di Giovanni Gravier, 1771. With title-vignette, title printed within engraved border. (8), 212 pp. 8vo. Later boards. Kress 6828; Goldsmiths 10722 (edition without place or publisher); not in Einaudi (listing three other editions from 1771); Higgs 5167; Mattioli 3734-36, all different editions, not this one; Kress, Italian Economic Literature, i, 406; Carpenter, Economic Bestsellers before 1850, xxv/2. One of four editions from 1771: the Livorno edition is the first, in the listing by Carpenter and in the Italian Economic Literature this Napels edition is given as the second in the sequence and is followed by the other 1771 editions. The work was an immediate succes and went through some 6 editions in a short period; Verri's publishing history outside Italy was remarkable -- four French editions, two in German, at least one, perhaps two in Dutch, and a partial Russian translation (Carpenter), and more recently, into English. "Verri's Meditazioni (Meditations on Political Economy) is a complete treatise on political economy, reminiscent of Turgot's work (1766) with its tight, logical framework and division into fairly short sections. The work was highly appreciated when it appeared and could be found, for example, in the library of Adam Smith. His work, though now largely ignored, may therefore have exerted greater influence than is generally believed" (New Palgrave, volume iv, p. 807)."This work (the Meditazioni) firmly embraces free trade, and anticipates (especially the concept of money as a universal commodity, the theory of value, and the dynamic … [Click Below for Full Description]

T. Davies, London, 1771. First edition in English. Engraved frontispiece in each volume. xxvii, [1], 115, [1]; 134, [2 ad] pp. 12mo. German enlightenment novel in English. First edition of the first English translation of Christoph Martin Wieland's philosophical novel Dialogen des Diogenes von Sinope, published in German in the preceding year. Wieland (1733-1813) was the author of the first Bildungsroman, Geschichte des Agathon (1766-67), as well as the epic Oberon, which was adapted into Carl Maria con Weber's opera. His influence on German literature of the later eighteenth eighteenth century is significant, and his work was sometimes translated into English more swiftly than that of many of his peers, including Goethe.

see item description for condition details please. Here is another One of a kind showcase that I'm offering for sale. If you missed purchasing one of the other display cases that I listed, here's your chance for another. This one showcases a 1784,London printed "Children's Curious Hieroglyphick Bible" in the upper portion of the case. (it does not have the general title, but is otherwise complete) (the first edition was printed in London in 1783) I needed to edit this portion of the description because I originally thought this book to be a 1792 printing. Looking again at the free end papers, there is a note that identifies this printing as a 1784...the apparent identifiers of that date are found on page 107 of this book...this is noted on the free end paper in pencil. I do now recall about eight years ago being able to confirm that note as factual, but I can't remember how exactly I was able to research that and confirm it...but I do remember that I was able to. ............................................................................................................................................................... I have included a link now to show that the copy I have in this case is in fact one of the earliest copies of this book (very rare indeed)....indicating that the writing on the free end paper is correct.....please look at the following link and closely compare the woodcuts with the one I have in my photo (the second to last photo).... I received an eBay notice about the link I had....I will try to make it possible to do the comparison another way...I'm sorry … [Click Below for Full Description]

YOUNG, Arthur
Folding engraved frontis. 15, [1], 328 pp. 8vo, cont. sprinkled calf, spine gilt. Dublin: S. Powell, 1771. First edition of this amalgamation of Young's Six Weeks Tour through the Southern Counties (1768) and Six Month' Tour through the North of England (1769). Baker (d. 1775) published several works suggested by Young under the auspices of the Dublin Society. "Arthur Young thought all these books very valuable…and would have been pleased to edit them for publication in England, where they were very scarce, if he could have found a bookseller prepared to guarantee him against loss, but he could not do so. His opinion was shared by the Royal Society, which elected Baker a Fellow in 1771, and by the Royal Society of Arts."-Fussell, II, p. 53. "Young was an honorary member of the Dublin Society and probably attended some of its meetings. He praised the Society for many of its activities but felt that it spent too much of its generous parliamentary appropriations upon manufacturing and commerce and too little on agriculture. He especially criticized its attempts to foster the silk manufacture. He urged the Society to re-establish a model farm like that formerly operated by John Wynn Baker, but preferably located in a wasteland, not near Dublin. It should not attempt experiments but should rather exhibit practices well established. He also proposed a series of premiums to stimulate Irish agriculture - for the culture of turnips, beans, and flax as parts of rational crop rotations, for the improvements of mountain and bog lands, and for tree planting."-Gazley, … [Click Below for Full Description]

NOLLET (Jean-Antoine, abbé).
Paris, Durand, 1771-77. 1771 6 vol. in-8° ( 167 x 100 mm.), 1 portrait frontispice et 116 pl. dépl. h.t. gravées sur cuivre représentant les instruments et appareils de physique utilisés par l'abbé Nollet lors de ses leçons publiques. Plein veau d'époque, dos à nerfs ornés, titres de maroquin rouge. (défauts d'usage et petits manques de cuir, intérieur trés frais.) Bel exemplaire, en reliure d'époque, du plus célèbre des ouvrages de vulgarisation scientifique du XVIIIème siècle (1ere édition : 1743). D'humble origine, Jean Antoine Nollet (1700-1770) choisit la carrière ecclésiastique, inévitable pour un enfant sans fortune, doué et avide de connaissances. Après des études philosophiques et théologiques à Paris, il devient précepteur dans la famille Taitbout où il rencontre les beaux esprits et personnages influents de l'époque. Ses dons manuels exceptionnels vont lui ouvrir une carrière d'un autre ordre : Il confectionne en 1728 un globe terrestre qu'il assemble lui-même et qu'il dédie à la duchesse du Maine. Cette uvre lui ouvre les portes de la Société des arts, parrainée par le duc de Clermont, et dont étaient membres les fameux artisans de l'époque. Érudit et artisan de talent, Nollet travaille avec du Fay et Réaumur comme constructeur d'instruments. C'est également un excellent orateur et vulgarisateur. Ces dons, joints aux instruments scientifiques qu'il a à sa disposition, l'encouragent à se lancer dans la carrière de conférencier. Il donne la première de ses "causeries expérimentales" en 1735. Le succès est immense et la popularité de Nollet va grandissant. Il est … [Click Below for Full Description]

In 1816 he created the first map of the United States extending to the Pacific Ocean. Melish started his own map publishing company in Philadelphia. It was the first of its kind in the United States. His maps were inspired by his travels and fulfilled a contemporary need for accurate cartography. US President Thomas Jefferson took note of Melish's maps, sending copies to associates in Europe. In 1816, Melish published an important map, Map of the United States with the contiguous British and Spanish Possessions, which depicted the United States from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, thus implicitly staking a larger claim for the US than existed at that time.Melish's books detailing the state of American manufacturing influenced Jefferson to adopt a point of view favoring manufacturing in the US, as opposed to shipping raw good to Europe for manufacturing into finished products.

On peut se demander si les quatre derniers tomes qui forment les tomes III et IV sont encore de Richardson, nous n'avons trouvé aucun renseignement sur ce fait, et aucune édition antérieure ne contient ces huit tomes. Alors que les deux premiers tomes ne sont composées que de lettres de Pamela, les derniers contiennent des lettres de tous les personnages. Exemplaire aux armes curieusement frappées à froid, et non à chaud, du Comte de Boucheron, d'azur à trois chevrons. Plein Veau marbré d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Les différents fers sont tout particulièrement bien frappés. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Roulettes sur les coupes. Coiffes du tome IV arasées. Quelques coin émoussés. Une page de garde manque au tome IV. Quelques rousseurs éparses. Malgré les défauts annoncés, bel exemplaire, dans une reliure certes commune, mais de grande qualité. Pamela fut un succès retentissant, le premier best seller international. Des éditeurs avaient demandé à Richardson une série de lettres morales, au fur et à mesure de l'écriture, les lettres prirent la forme d'un roman, ce fut le premier de l'auteur, lequel déclencha plus qu'une mode, un véritabl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Verri, Pietro
Napoli, nella stamperia di Giovanni Gravier, 1771. One volume in small 8vo ; pp. (8), 212; contemporary stiff vellum, very little soiled, no defects, spine with two contrasting gilt lettering-pieces, front endpaper and title with paper flaw at lower edge, some light foxing in places, else clean and crisp, a very good copy. First Napoli edition preceded by the Livorno edition of the same year. Pietro Verri (1728-97) was an Italian economist, administrator, and philosopher. This is his most important economic publication which went through numerous editions and was translated into French, German, Dutch, and English. It is a complete treatise on political economy, reminiscent of Turgot’s work (1766) with its tight, logical framework and division into fairly short sections. Although these cover a wide range of subjects, they are interconnected by the basic theme of the work, the increase in annual reproduction of the nation through trade of surplus product which Verri related to the balance of production and consumption. This ratio or balance is the key concept in Verri’s economic analysis. (New Palgrave IV, p.807) Kress 6828, Higgs 5167, Kress Italian 406 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

BELLIN (Jacques-Nicolas).
1771. 591 x 872 mm. Grande et belle carte détaillée des côtes de l'Adriatique, depuis Venise jusqu'à Otrante dans les Pouilles et l'île grecque de Corfou dans la Mer Ionienne, issue de L'Hydrographie françoise publiée entre 1737 et 1772. Elle est ornée d'un cartouche de titre, et traversée des lignes de rumb marquant les directions des vents. En bas à gauche, en carton, carte réduite de la Méditerranée. Ingénieur hydrographe français, Bellin entra en 1721 au Dépôt des cartes, plans et journaux de la Marine, créé en 1720 par le Régent. C'est grâce à lui que le Dépôt de la Marine, constitué à partir des archives de la Marine, devint l'une des plus belles collections d'Europe. Il publia de nombreux ouvrages et atlas tels que la Description géographique de la Guyane en 1763 ou le Neptune François en 1773. Petites déchirures et salissures marginales, mouillure claire au bas de la carte.
